Well, we know it takes time for Microsoft to wake up, but boy when they wake up, they go Boooom! They are doing it with IE9 and Bing, and the competition are already feeling the heat, heads are already rolling at Googolplex.
IE9 is leveraging the full power of the PC, and now Bing is also. Set to be released next week, the new Bing is showing something we’ve never seen in a search machine before, the full power of HTML5, and boy it is beautiful! And they know this at Google, because news is just out the head of UI and Experience at Google has just been demoted to a lesser function. Indeed Google is feeling the competition from Bing, Facebook and the likes.
Did I say the new Bing with IE9 is beautiful and functional? Don’t take my word for it, just see it for yourselves below, the full power of Accelerated Graphics:

Have I got a game for you! This was brought to my attention thanks to a tweet from Chris Pirillo. If you were to just look at the picture, you would think that the game looked boring and dull. Well I’m here to tell you that you are wrong! In fact, if you are not careful, you could waste that late night you promised yourself you would cram for that big exam.
Sinuous is an intensive diagonal scrolling game that requires every bit of your attention. The goal is to guide your blue orb and its lengthy, meandering tail amongst a field of innumerable glowing red spheres of death. As you continue to survive, you gain points as well as even more difficult challenges. There is even a leader board for you to try and trump. The best part is that this is all brought to you by the power of HTML5. just to sweeten the pot even more, you can even play on your iPhone, iPod Touch, or you Android device.
So what are you waiting for? It’s time to waste that 10 minutes you have between classes and start dodging spots of doom!
